Rugs that are popular in our to-the-trade showroom get that way because they fulfill a design need.

Here is a selection of hand-knotted rugs that have worked well with designers over the last couple of years.

Gold silk on blue

Gold and yellow silk on premium wool.

White on Water Blue

Over a light background the rug maker has weaved a mostly white pattern along with a section of toupe.

Grey on Ivory

Here is an all-over grey pattern on a light ivory background. 

Erased Wicker

The "erased technique" has emerged as a very popular design element. The rug designers deliberately plot areas of knots to make the rug look as if there is worn spot.

Erased Pavers

Reminds us of a fine old patio with people enjoying the outdoors, sipping cocktails and looking forward to the dinner sizzling on the grill.

Oushak Fave

Oushak Fave has been on the popular list for a long time. It's beautiful. It's uncomplicated. It holds up well to many styles.

Sea Spray Pattern

This all-over pattern would have been pleasing on its own. What gives it distinction is the grey wash that covers all the elements and gives us the impression of the tide on the beach.


According to WikiPedia, "In physical geography, tundra is type of biome where the tree growth is hindered by low temperatures and short growing seasons."

Tundra might as well be on another planet as far as we sub-tropical Floridians are concerned. Yet this rug has caught on here.

Stone Grey

Grey is a popular color. It always has been and it always will be because for interior designers, it's such a great neutral color.

Contemporary Traditional

We have seen many designers and clients opt for a designed, hand-knotted rug, but with a contemporarty twist.

Colors are toned down to neutral allowing other elements in the room to easily stand out.
